There will be a sung Requiem in the Classical Roman Rite for Cardinal Reginald Pole in the chapel of Magdalen College, Oxford, on Monday evening next, (17th), at 7pm. He was of course the last Roman Catholic Archbishop of Canterbury and one of the originators of the Council of Trent.

It has been brought to my attention that there is also a Sung Requiem for the cardinal at the Birmingham Oratory at 7.30pm.

There are a number of Masses organised for this evening for the cardinal details to be found on the LMS website. I specifically mentioned the Magdalen one because Cardinal Reginald Pole was a member of the college for a number of years and took his B.A. there.

Have you any handy tips on where to park? I'd love to be there.

Greetings, I plan to park in St. Giles, somewhere near Blackfriars, having driven down the A40 and down the Woodstock Road, ( 2 speedcameras!). I am hoping that one doesn't have to pay beyond 6pm. Then it's an easy ten min. walk along Broad St., Holywell St.,( past the new memorial to the martyrs at the very end), to Magdalen. That's the plan anyway. Hope it's some help. (There can be a lot of traffic around Oxford at evening rush hour but it is mostly on the ring road and the A40 westbound.)
